  • My question is: How did those mines get there? I will speculate that those vehicles were not rolling around in no-man’s land. I also take it that the Ukrainian forces do not lay mines anywhere they could be driving or walking on. Then, it is safe to assume that some thugs are infiltrating through Ukrainian lines to lay mines in likely travel routes.
    Ukraine should address this threat and especially pay back the favor.
